Brief Answer:
No this is not serious.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,

Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I can understand your concerns.
The bleeding is usually a side effect of I-pill due to hormonal imbalance ( I-pill contains high doses of hormone in it).
I-pill can cause menstrual irregularities for 2-3 cycles, so do not take any stress.
Hope it is useful, feel free to discuss more.
Good luck.
